Continuing education just got a little bit easier to tackle, thanks to financial assistance from the International Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Council of Associations. Good for up to $200, certified firms can apply for a scholarship to attend an IICRC-approved class or approved industry event. The scholarship is good for up to half the tuition/registration costs of an IICRC-approved course. For example, if the class is $400 or more, you will receive the full $200 scholarship; if the class is $300, you will receive $150.  
“The IICRCA is always looking to enhance benefits to IICRC Certified Firms,” said IICRCA Chairman Bryan O’Haleck. “This new scholarship is a great benefit for those looking to further their education while keeping money in their pockets.”
The Certified Firm Scholarship is available to principals and full-time employees of North American Certified Firms in good standing at the time the scholarship is awarded. Scholarship awards are intended only to help defer participant registration fees for taking IICRC approved courses, seminars and events. Only IICRC Certified Firms are eligible to participate. Applications must be received by Sept. 30, 2015. For more details on the Certified Firm scholarship, guidelines and the scholarship application, visit: .
